330ml bottle. Poured a clear, effervescent golden amber with a small white to off-white head of strong retention leaving a heavy lace. Bright and fresh aromas of grapefruit, peach, tangerine and mango. Biscuity pale malts in the mid palate complement a marmalade and pithy citrus bitterness leading into the finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and soft intensity bittersweet malt/hop finish. An attractively crisp and refreshingly balanced session style pale ale.

Smells great but the flavour is a little boring. After the first smell I was expecting more. Not bad though.

6pack from dans, I have drunk this beer on and off over the past few years and it never disappoints, a great Aussie made pale ale ShaneJ (903) - AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle from cellar door (October 2013). Dark gold/amber, loose white head, lots of caramel, passionfruit, some citrus in aroma, flavour is more of the same, melon, grassy hops, medium bitterness, full body, very good. Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2014
Definitely more tropical fruit than lower citrus. Ping of caramel in the malt. Almost bubbly in the nose but not carbonated by any means. Bit of golden ale early but very fruit salad in mouth. Sugary midway through leading into tasty finish.

Tap at Mrs Parmas. Had this a while back, was a pretty nice fruit driven pale. Had passionfruit and caramel malt on the nose. Taste was more fruit driven and went down pretty well. Bitterness in offensive. Solid Pale Dervock (1506) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle - pours deep gold with small white head, some lacing. Lots of stone fruit with an earthy nettle tone. Taste is a bit thin up front, then the hops hit and fruity dry finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Feral_Hop_Hog (32) - - JAN 3, 2014
Even though this beauty is an ale (and an elegant one at that) it reminds me quite a bit of Victory Prima Pils (USA) in its robust mouthfeel and crisp palate. It’s citrus and cut grass on the nose, cloudy on the pour and (in my bottle at least) forms a carbonated cone all the way to the bottom of the glass. It’s perfectly balanced and one of the best beers I’ve had over the past year. Good job guys! Oakes (19370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Hazy light tan. Frothy head. Grapefruity, slightly floral hop note. Very toasty malts. Light pale malts are actually quite nice. crippledbrewer (45) - - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber with a rich head that leaves a discreet lacing down the glass. The aroma is a nice hop forward profile of tropical fruits, pine needles and citrus. The palate is soft with a firm malt base, the taste is like a fruit salad on a summer day with lots of undefined fruity flavours swirling on the tongue leading to a medium bitter finish.
